National Short Term Retailer of the Year winners!

As many of you will no doubt remember, in the lead up to Christmas 2018 we successfully launched a pop-up shop in Bluewater Shopping Centre that included our very popular ‘Blending Experience’. The experience allows customers to have fun experimenting with different flavours and botanicals while creating their very own bespoke gin. The Blending Experience has since been relocated to our distillery in Marden, and we’re so excited to announce that it will now be joined by a very special accolade – the award for National Short Term Retailer of the Year!

Our pop-up shop in Bluewater was nominated for the award at The SCEPTRE Awards and last night we were lucky enough to beat some very tough competition, including Maison Christian Dior, to be crowned as winners.

We are so grateful to Bluewater Shopping Centre and their team for allowing us the opportunity and of course we’re extremely proud of all of our staff who worked so hard in making the dream into a reality. For a small local company to win such a prestigious national award is a great achievement, especially with our first foray into the retail sphere, and it could only be done with the support of our wonderful staff and our lovely fans from across the UK.
